    I worked at Lockton Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, professional but fun culture, good winter & summer company parties

    Cons

    Underutilization of agency management system, high expectations without adequate direction (produced result may not meet someone's expectation(s), but no guidance given on how to 'get there').

    Advice to Management

    Use the agency management system to its potential, this would make it more possible to compare market data from client to client, and would make the renewal processes much smoother and quicker.

    Pros

    Great opportunity. Lockton always looks to promote from within. The workload you're given is straining, but it allows for great opportunities. The culture here is un-matched. Work hard / play hard.

    Cons

    Workload is heavy, can be overwhelmed during busy seasons. The travel can be tough as well.

    Pros

    Environment and entrepreneurial atmosphere.
    Lockton does a good job of inclusivity with all levels of employees . Easy access to upper management

    Cons

    Timeline promotions. They promote employees who do not necessarily deserve a promotion but because they have been there long enough.

    Advice to Management

    Let your top tier talent advance when ready, don’t base promotions off of timing.

    Pros

    Good compensation, generous 401k match, avg health benefits

    Cons

    They pay well but hire few....meaning, if you're leading a "team", you won't get many team members to support growing enterprise. Results in getting stuck in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Add bench depth to team....too few human resources to get job done well and grow the company.

    Pros

    Benefits, culture, travel opportunities, promotes job advancement, work hard play hard environment, pays for certifications and various licensing, great campus, Beer Fridays, wonderful people

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement/assistance, varying time commitments to the job, work/life balance can be difficult for some people, top-down transparency issues

    Advice to Management

    Company decisions for the STL office need to be made regarding all departments. Upper management can be heavily one-sided in the way they handle their business, and sometimes leaves their employees feeling undervalued. Please keep in mind that any department that generates more than half of your annual revenue needs to be acknowledged and also heard.

    Additionally, please offer more transparency to your employees - we can all read between the lines and its better to just “come out with it” then beat around the bush.

    Overall, I’ve enjoyed my experience. Great culture, great people. Please continue to harbor that by taking the above advice.
